The very first of the Westerly Storm 33's to come out of the factory THUNDER was the original boatshow yacht for the launch of the class in 1986, debuting at London's Earls Court Boatshow.
Launched to be a contender to the highly successful Sigma 33 class the design brief to designer Ed Dubois was for a boat capable of performing at regattas while providing comfortable accommodation below for a maximum crew of 7. The boat has proved to hit all the requirements of the brief and has proved very popular as a safe and predictable cruising yacht.
Extensively upgraded in recent years THUNDER's inventory highlights include:

Awlgrip painted topsides.

Tek-Dek synthetic teak panels on cockpit seating. (2019).
Underwater hull soda blasted and finished with CopperCoat. (2017)
Decks soda blasted and fully re-painted. (2017)
Volvo Penta D1-20 engine. (2014)
Mast fully re-wired with marine-grade tinned cable. (2016)

Currently afloat and in commission, she is offered in sail away condition. An ideal family cruiser, capable of competing in local regattas.
Wintering ashore, viewing strictly by prior arrangement.

There's an old saying in yacht racing circles. If a boat looks right, they say, then it is right. And one glance at the Westerly Storm 33 will reveal that here is a yacht to be reckoned with.

No effort has been spared, no compromise made in producing what is certain to be an important one-design class. Even so, Westerly's tough brief to designer Ed Dubois wasn't just for an out and out racer; the Storm had to match up to the strict demands of the Lloyd's Hull Construction Certificate, and, more difficult still, provide truly luxurious accommodation for seven.
The Storm 33 is the result of that brief. And the challenge has been met. Brilliantly.
